What about ->check_completions()? After all, that is what both ->poll()
and ->poll_batch do but with a different stop condition, no ?
So it would also be easy to merge the two: both tag and batch are
unsigned int which could be called "cookie", and add a flag to tell how
to interpret it (as a tag or a batch limit).
e.g. something like:

+typedef int (check_completions_fn)(struct blk_mq_hw_ctx *,
		enum blk_mq_check_flags, /* flag (TAG or BATCH) */
		unsigned int); /* Target tag or batch limit */

Best regards.
